Bought this several months ago for my very first website, and have spent lots of time playing with this theme. It is incredibly easy to use and customize, and I say that as someone who started as a complete newbie. I absolutely recommend this theme due to several factors which I found important as a beginner. Easy to use, extremely flexible, a dedicated help forum where my questions have always been answered in a timely manner, and the authors constantly keep this theme updated in time with the wp updates, and always with new cool features which started as suggestions on their forum site.

Hi genephemera

Thanks for your warm and kind words. We are glad you like the theme ;)

All the best

Thanks a lot for this awesome theme!

But I have an issue with the demo.xml file

“You can fill your site content like live preview just by few clicks!

In download package , in demo-data folder, there is a file name demo.xml. Go to your wordpress admin dashboard, in Tools > import, select wordpress from table. now you need to browse and upload data.xml file, wordpress will automaticaly import the demo contents.”

In my download package, in demo-data folder, I have 5 files: lotus_agency.xml lotus_business.xml lotus_personal.xml lotus_showcase.xml lotus_food.xml

But I don’t have demo.xml…. so I can’t import the demo content. I have tried with the files I have but It doesn’t work at all.

Is there any solution here? Thanks


Each of the files in demo-data folder are related to one of our demo sites. So, if you need a website like agency demo site, you need to import lotus_agency.xml file.
Might be our server issue at the time, please try again and let us know

Thanks for your answer. I have tried this like 10 times and it finaly work !


You can upload images and insert code with code-highlighting.
It is organized and searchable (that makes support easier and faster)

Where can I find the Smart Page Builder in the WP backend??

Found it :)

Also, I almost always seem to be getting countless errors when I try importing Agency Demo Data.


One last thing, do the demo data files contain demo images?

Because the demo content that includes pages, posts, categories, comments etc are all uploaded now.


No Images as mentioned in documentation. Found that too :)

Im having trouble getting the UL LI bullet points to work in your theme. I know where its at in the CSS File to fix the indent and add the bullet but the scoial media icons are also associated with the same tag and adds a bullet to the icons. Any idea how to fix ?

Any Feedback please?

Please send us your topic url, we will take a look and back to you asap

http://infinitimortgagenm.com/loan-programs/fha-mortgage-loans-in-new-mexico/... This is one of urls. I changed the ul type to bullet and added the indent to the styling sheet… But you have the UL LI coded into the Social Media Icons as well as the Secondary navigation.

Hello, i have a customised google map, with colour overlays and custom marker etc. How can i edit the current map in the theme, i can not find the source files anywhere.

wherever i click on pictures of portfolio, it goes to an error 404 page, i checked the name of URL, and it s exactly the same, the portfolio items are still in my admin, but it s impossible to display each of them. i absolutely dont know what to do ??

thank you for your answer and help, aicha m.

some more detail : what is strange is that for example all links that doesnt work are like this :

http://indigoweb.fr/portfolio/all/message-des-etoiles/ if i remove manually on the browser the “all” it works : http://indigoweb.fr/portfolio/message-des-etoiles/

but the “all” is added automatically and i cannot move anything by myself

thank you for your kindly help


Please go to setting > permalink, and click save button

it s fixed : i updated my wp to the new version, and it did it automatically. thx !

Great template. Just one question: Is there any communication between server where template is installed and your server? Wondering about functionality of import key.

Looking forward your feedback.

Regards. Johnny.


Yes, the only communication is about checking and informing you for new theme updates.

I’d like to add a membership component that limits what content is visible to members and the general public. I would also like to charge a monthly amount to members. Can anyone recommend a secure and easy to use plugin that works well with my Lotus theme?

I would also like to be able to sell products through my site too. It would be great to have a plug-in that can do both!

I’m new to this wordpress thing – any help would be appreciated!

I want to change the ratio (the size) of the thumbnails on the 1/3 and 1/4 preview. Right now the images are 357×201 and 477×273 – I want them to be square. Is there a way to do that?

... and is there a way to put that configs.php into my child-theme?

Yes, you can create same directories on your child theme. Just copy the configs.php to same directory on child theme.

somehow copying this file to the child theme doesnt work. I really created the same subdirectory :(

Lotus kicks out the “featured image” widget in the product-editing-mode of WooCommerce. How can that be possible? How can I change that?


I don’t know about woocommerce, and as you know this theme is not woocommerce ready


When I want to preview my layer with layer slider, I have this message LayerSlider

WP: old jQuery issue

“It looks like you are using an old version (1.10.2) of the jQuery library. LayerSlider requires at least version 1.7.2 or newer. If you are using the WordPress version of LayerSlider, you can try out the “jQuery Updater” plugin from the WP plugin depository. If you don’t know what to do, you can write us a private message from our CodeCanyon profile page. We need a temporary WP admin account (or a temporary FTP account in some cases) to solve this issue.”

I did try the Jquery Updater but nothing happend, so what do I have to do?



We will update layerslider to lastest version in next update. Next update will be available on 26 August. Thanks for your patience

Hi! I finally updated my theme + the revo slider – saved all but my slider doesn’t show up on the front page. I changed the slider back to another one, back to the one i want but sill – no slider shows up

I don’t know what to do


That is your WordPress version?

I use the recent verson: 3.6–de_DE

Hi! I absolutely enjoy this theme. I LOVE IT. Could you kindly share me the demo package for your preview? I really want to understand how it works and just customize from there. You could maybe put it with different images or something. plz send me preview package via cervantes94@g.ucla.edu. thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would like the personal site template please!!!!!

THANKSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!! from here how would i Upload this file. would I replace this xml file for one in the theme folder and then re-upload the theme????

I tried uploading via wordpress uploader in the tools sections in my admin but most of the file fails and the rest it says it already exists!!

Probably that was because of our server issue on that time. Please try importing demo content again and if you got errors after submitting xml file, use back button and click submit button again.

I am thinking of purchasing the theme (looks great). I have only one question. In Layer Slider are transitions like “Turning cuboid to right (90)” included ?

Thank you!

Please… is there any suggestion?!


We already included latest version of Layer Slider in Lotus theme, you can use all of its 3D transition effects.




Great Theme! Have 1 question, i saw probably them do not support that, but tell me did them offer for services page a left sidebar or just “Navigation” sidebar, which help you to browsing site

I need to have that navigation sidebar in left or right side. I pray that is ;-)


Thanks for your interest ;)
If you mean service single page, Yes it supports sidebar on left or right side.

Ok, tell me possible is put in thsi sidebar “navigation of these “service menu” for example servie have submenu: a b c d

when you click D in sidebar you have list of all pages – a-d and D is marked??

If it is support – great, if not probably will must do some modifications? :)

Yes, you need to create a menu in appearance > menu and assign the service pages to it. then you can display this menu in sidebar. If you click one of the menu links in sidebar, page will direct to that page and the link will be marked.
Hope this help you

Hi, guys!
